Appearing on the Martin Lewis Money Show on ITV last night (21 January), Lee-Anne explained that being in debt had caused her great anxiety but that she’d become determined to clear it when she had the lightbulb moment of becoming a mum.
Martin said: “Debt is more than a money issue. It can have a huge impact on your sense of wellbeing. If you’re in debt, often you need a lightbulb moment to get out of it – the realisation it won’t sort itself out. You need to act.”
Using methods explained by MoneySavingExpert.com founder Martin, Lee-Anne managed to pay off all her debts by moving credit cards to 0% interest and cutting costs with a combination of budgeting, switching and haggling. See below and watch the video above for more on how Lee-Anne became debt-free.
